You will experience the world's most incredible scenery and historical finds as you journey first to the Dead Sea and then on to Masada, a mountain fort that is now a national Jewish shrine, and world famous for its recognition by UNESCO for its unique structure and history.
Boarding your coach at the pier, you will first travel through the dramatic landscape of the Negev desert and descend 3,600 feet toward the Dead Sea - the lowest point on earth. Your first stop will be at the breathtaking location of Masada, the most spectacular ancient archaeological site in Israel. Upon arrival, you will ascend by cable car to the summit of this mountaintop fortress which was built by Herod the Great. Plenty of time will be allowed to explore the magnificent ancient ruins, which include Herod's three-tiered palace, the synagogue, the baths, the defending walls and the water cisterns that are still to this day considered an engineering feat.
After a morning of extraordinary vistas, you will be treated to a relaxing lunch overlooking the pale, still waters of the Dead Sea. Following your meal, you will be given the opportunity to experience the exquisite sensation of floating effortlessly upon the buoyant waters of the Dead Sea. With more salt and minerals than any other body of water in the world, the Dead Sea is considered to be a natural health and beauty spa.
Your afternoon continues with a picturesque drive along the shores of the Dead Sea to Qumran and the Qumran Visitor's Center where you will be able to look around and purchase products containing minerals from the Dead Sea. Afterwards, you'll make your way back to Haifa, with the impact of the remarkable sites you have seen lasting as vivid memories for years to come.

Behold the archaeological treasures unearthed in the Valley of Kings, and then explore several temples nearby, one of them built for the powerful female pharaoh Hatshepsut.
After departing from the pier, you will settle in for a relaxing drive inland through vast expanses of desert, punctuated by surprisingly fertile farmland. Upon arriving in Luxor, you will enjoy a hearty lunch before crossing the Nile River. In the Valley of Kings on the river’s west bank, excavations have revealed extraordinary tombs belonging to Egypt’s legendary pharaohs. This valley was the royal burial ground for the likes of Tutankhamun, Seti I and Ramses II, and archaeologists are still surprised by the riches that continue to be found.
Not far away, you will discover the magnificent Temple of Hatshepsut, a beloved ruler known as the Splendor of Splendors. A rare female pharaoh, she was one of ancient Egypt’s most successful rulers, and the beautifully painted reliefs on her tomb reflect that.
It took a Herculean effort to construct these temples and tombs. At Deir El Medina, you will see where the stonemasons and craftsmen that built them lived. Many of the artisans were buried in tombs here and worshipped at the Temple of Hathor, which you will visit.
The last stop will be at Habu Temple, a huge mortuary complex built to honor Ramses III. The gates, pylons and chapels inside the walls are spectacular, as are the relief depicting battles on the exterior walls. Following this visit, you will return to Safaga.
